More a force of nature than a true villain, but really great art nonetheless!!! :thumbsup:

I wouldn't say he's a villain, just a personification of the destructive force possessed by nature.

Nice rendition, but this birdie isn't as epic as Chernabog.

I wish I had the movie too; it's been YEARS since I've seen the Firebird. It would have been so cool to see him in Kingdom Hearts... Uh anyways (sorry about that) this is an astounding picture of him capturing him in all of his glory!

Ooh, the fire eagle. He's a more obscure villain and I loved him.

Fantasia 2000 I don't consider it to be a sequel, since its just a bunch of different clips with all different characters. Just like the Pixar shorts dvd, one cannot consider the second shorts DVD as a sequel because it isnt :)

As far as Disney villians go, the Firebird was definitely the most beautiful

I don't really see Firebird as a villain so much as a force of nature. But you render it beautifully.

Awesome job. :love:

I loved this movie as a kid. Heck, I still love it. I can just remember my reaction to seeing this shot of the Firebird for the first time.... Somewhere between being absolutely amazed and utterly petrified.

Nature can be terrifying, especially volcanoes. But at the same time, if it weren't for volcanic eruptions then forests wouldn't be able to grow as well as they do. Volcanic ash and soil is full of minerals that enable all kinds of plants to flourish.
Amazing how something so destructive can pave the way for something a hundred times more beautiful.

i din't think the fire bird was a villain, i thought of it more as nature taking it's course and in the end if the fire bird hadn't done what it did the forest sprite wouldn't have been able to see both sides of nature and make the beautifull land that she did.

:blackrose: I agree, but that's my favorite part from Fantasia 2000 and naming it a "villain" is just a mere excuse to draw it and add it to the family ;)

My Childhood... has returned to me again :D the first movie who made me cry is Fantasia 2000, more specific? Firebird.

I was so shocked when I saw him at the first time, It was so beautiful, and damn, I love villains, they deserve more, I would like to see evil win against good in Disneyworld.

This may sounds strange, but out of every horror movie I have ever seen. This has got to be one of the most fear producing things I have ever seen. I have never been more scared for a character than I have for the forest sprite. Even though I knew she would be find, the idea of a giant creature chasing after such a tiny helpless creature, leaving it with no option other than to run for it's tiny life, destroying everything in its path. I remember I actually screamed out "RUN, SPRITE. RUN!". It really does set off the fight or flight response. XD

I think that's the way animals and other creatures feel when an actual volcano explodes, helpless, confused and really scared for their lifes D=

Yeah. Disney's really good at that. They don't do it much anymore, but they really know how to simulate something in our subcutaneous. Like Man in Bambi.

I've got the story you wanted RIGHT HERE: [link]

In another (unfinished) story, a group of astronauts have to visit the planet it goes to, in order to seek its help in taking out a "villain of darkness".

I'm working on revising the story mentioned earlier. And I've decided that the "magma bird" in question makes a return appearance later, as the thing which ultimately destroys the series' main antagonist: The Stain. Someone did a painting of the thing for me.

Technically, The Fire Bird is not evil, it is not considered a "villain", its actually a force of nature.

I wrote a story that was based on this: My sister and I created a Pokemon hybrid, involving a Moltres egg and Groudon DNA, resulting in a hybrid like this. Dangerous.

Later, two other hybrids of this kind appeared: One of ice, like Articuno, and another of clouds and air.
